Close up of the start.  FYI, that ladder is bomber, welded metal.  To tough to kick apart, and to heavy to carry it out.  Is this the original?

Great photo of the Ladder. That is the original ladder. Originally we used a sling on the flake to hold the left side of the ladder and a 1/4 inch bolt through a hole near the top of the right side to steady the thing. When Bachar freed the route (sans ladder), he simply pulled the ladder away and the bolt with it. It certainly is not as steady as when we originally climbed this route. Jan 11, 2010
